February 15th, 2008.
The two WORST DAYS of my entire life.
Those are the dates Matt & I lost our babies.
With our first loss, I was 11 weeks along.
With our second loss, I was 6 weeks along.
Today is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
And, on this day (well, really...EVERYDAY), I think about my babies.
Babies that Matt & I created out of so much love & so much want.
In the days after both miscarriages, I didn't want to get out of bed.
There were times that I had to remind myself to breathe.
The pain was so raw, that I thought I would never feel happy again.
Your life never goes back to normal after you lose a child. You just learn a new normal...where your baby is never far from your thoughts or your heart.
So, on this day, if you've ever lost a baby/child, I'm praying for you.
Know that you are NOT alone.
There are people out there who understand.
